Reviews

soprano Sky Ingram, as Avis, appeared perfectly cast and able to inhabit her role with equal dramatic and vocal persuasion.

Corinna da Fonseca-Wollheim, The New York Times

The Wreckers, Bard SummerScape, New York.

 

Sky Ingram, in a flawless performance, copes with long, stratospheric lines of vocal writing

Mark Pullinger, Bachtrack

Glare (Royal Opera House, Covent Garden)

 

The star of the show was undoubtedly Sky Ingram in her role of Musetta, Marcello’s flirtatious and temperamental love interest, who was the very definition of bohemian passion.

Anastasia Kennedy, The State of the Arts

La boheme, Opera North

 

Ingram shows yet again why her star is rising fast

Mark Valencia, WhatsOnStage

Glare (Royal Opera House)

 

The star of the show, and by an immense margin, was the Frau Fluth of Sky Ingram, a tall, sexy Australian with a figure that enabled her to strip plausibly to minimal dominatrix gear, and a voice which could do anything Nicolai wanted, which in Frau Fluth’s case is a great deal

- Michael Tanner, The Spectator UK

Frau Fluth, Die lustigen Weiber von Windsor

 

Don Giovanni... is all about the singing & we had some superlative examples of that ... led by the Elvira of Sky Ingram... Hers was the performance of the Summer Festival scene so far.

Melanie Eskenazi, @musicOMH

Don Giovanni (Garsington Opera)

 

Sky Ingram was a terrific Donna Elvira. She sang with a winning combination of strong and colourful emotion and control of melodic line; 'Mi tradi quell'alma ingrata' was one of the evening's highlights.

Claire Seymour, Opera Today

Don Giovanni (Garsington Opera)

 

In the comic scenes, Sky Ingram as Venus was the clear winner. With a mane of red hair and long legs, she was the visual image of a screen goddess and vamped it up something rotten.

Robert Hugill, Planet Hugill

Orpheus (Royal Opera House, Covent Garden)

 

Sky Ingram's Frau Fluth had the highest profile, and Ingram went for it with a will, her full-on comic acting and extravagant athleticism not getting in the way of her big, characterful soprano and some agile coloratura.

Peter Reed, Opera (magazine)

Frau Fluth, Die lustigen Weiber von Windsor

 

One of the other pleasures was Sky Ingram as a statuesque, raven-haired Frau Fluth; she was lovely throughout, and everything she did – including her on-going hoovering and dusting during the interval – oozed sex-appeal. Ms Ingram will go far

Jim Pritchard, Seen and Heard International

Frau Fluth, Die lustigen Weiber von Windsor

 

Sky Ingram a la voix d’airain qu’exige Elvira à la fois dans les élans amoureux et dans les éclats de fureur où elle excelle. Son assurance dans « Mi tradi quell’alm ingrata » lui vaut de francs applaudissements.

(Sky Ingram has the brazen voice that Elvira demands both in the amorous impulses and in the bursts of fury she excels at. Her assurance in "Mi tradi quell'alm ingrata" earned her applause.)

Marcel Quillévéré, forumopera.com

Don Giovanni (Garsington Opera)

 

There are performances of blazing conviction by Sky Ingram’s Dido

Tim Ashley, The Guardian

Dido and Aeneas (English Touring Opera)

 

Sky Ingram utilise sa voix ronde et sonore pour proposer une Donna Elvira forte en caractère. Habillée d'un rouge qui met en relief sa chevelure rousse ainsi que la passion du personnage

(Sky Ingram uses her round and sonorous voice to offer a strong Donna Elvira in character. Dressed in a red that highlights her red hair and the passion of the character)

Agostino Trotta, Olyrix

Don Giovanni (Garsington Opera)

 

The London-based Australian soprano, Sky Ingram, as Avis, above all, created a character who was hotter and more intense than life, an unforgettable star turn…striking with her flowing red hair. Her bright voice filled the hall, always agile enough to negotiate her often athletic lines.

New York Arts, Michael Miller

The Wreckers, Bard SummerScape, New York.

 

Sky Ingram a bold and elegant Countess

- Mark Ronan, Theatre Reviws

Le nozze di Figaro (Nevill Holt Opera)

 

Ingram’s Countess also delivered powerful emotions in her arias. “Porgi, amor” was painfully sad and lonely

- Bachtrack, Jane Shuttleworth,

Le nozze di Figaro (Nevill Holt Opera)

 

a touchingly vulnerable and pure-toned Sky Ingram

Rupert Christiansen, The Telegraph

Dido and Aeneas (English Touring Opera)

 

Sky Ingram’s lyrically sentient Countess

- The Stage, George Hall

Le nozze di Figaro (Nevill Holt Opera)

 

fine singing from a strong team led by the Australian soprano Sky Ingram

David Mellor, Mail Online

Dido and Aeneas (English Touring Opera)

 

Sky Ingram, in the star role of Frau Fluth (Mistress Ford), has a compelling stage presence, great looks and a versatile soprano voice.

 - Fiona Maddocks, The Observer

Frau Fluth, Die lustigen Weiber von Windsor

 

Rarely does Purcell’s vivid setting of Nahum Tate’s libretto find such convincing exponents as in Sky Ingram’s impassioned Dido
